After the reveal of everyone’s favourite time travelling Super Saiyan Trunks, Two new playable characters have been added to the roster of Dragon Ball FighterZ ahead of the Open Beta in a few days. Both characters have their respective fighting style and unique skills! Bandai Namco Entertainment Europe also revealed more details about Online Battles.
Piccolo, the villain-turned surrogate father of Gohan, is considered to be one of the most technical characters with his expandable arm to grab his opponents. He has various ways to break the opponent’s guard, and he can also fire fast and powerful beams. Players can charge up for a stronger attack by long-pressing the button. To create a huge blow, Piccolo can use his ability to release Ki blast from afar or for an effective strike; players can even connect it with a combo move!
Krillin, the best bud of Goku, doesn’t have that much reach and power due to his diminutive size but he easily compensates with several different techniques such as the Kamehameha to fight a long-range game. He can also skillfully confuse his opponents by leaving an image of himself before turning into an attack. Furthermore, players have the choice to use the famous Senzu Bean. Fans will also be delighted to know that his signature and blockable attack is also included in Dragon Ball FighterZ.
In the Online Battles of Dragon Ball FighterZ, players can fight and interact with other users in the FighterZ lobby. That’s the perfect place to rise up to the arena stage and get matched with other users who are willing to battle! Players can also communicate with Z-Stamp, use facial expressions from Dragon Ball characters and watch their match with the replay mode!
Dragon Ball FighterZ is slated for an early 2018 launch on the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. Registration for the closed beta will open on 26th July. I’ll be joining that registration as soon as it’s available and I can’t wait for the full roster of Dragon Ball FighterZ to be revealed.
